Marvel Studios is once again making waves, and this time, it’s with their ground-breaking series “Echo.” Scheduled for a simultaneous release on Disney+ and Hulu on January 10, 2024, it will be the first from Marvel Studios to carry a TV-MA rating. For those who are always on the lookout for a good binge, there’s more good news: all five episodes will drop at once!
The series centers on Maya Lopez, also known as Echo, portrayed by Alaqua Cox. After her intense journey in New York during the events of “Hawkeye (2021)”, Maya finds herself back in Oklahoma. Here, she has to grapple with her past, dive deep into her Native American heritage, and connect with her community and family. With the looming shadow of Wilson Fisk, played by the brilliant Vincent D’Onofrio, and the legacy she must confront, the series promises to be an intense ride.
Joining Alaqua and Vincent is an ensemble cast. Charlie Cox comes in as Matt Murdock or Daredevil, the blind lawyer with a penchant for vigilantism. We also have Devery Jacobs as Bonnie, Zahn McClarnon as William Lopez, Cody Lightning as Cousin Biscuits, and many more. The show’s direction is helmed by Sydney Freeland (Navajo) and Catriona McKenzie (Gunaikurnai), ensuring we’re in for a cinematic treat.
What’s notably special about “Echo” is its creator, Marion Dayre, who serves as the head writer. The series itself is part of Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and its announcement has created a significant buzz, especially after its riveting trailer was unveiled.
For fans, January 10 isn’t just a date. It’s the day they’ll dive into a story of legacy, identity, and action. Remember to mark your calendars, because “Echo” will be available on Disney+ and Hulu for you to experience this Marvel masterpiece.
